We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which happen to be from DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, BetMGM Sportsbook, and William Hill Sportsbook. We also discuss whether or they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

USA (Women) To Lead by 12+ Points After the 1st Quarter vs Nigeria (Women) – Boosted to +175 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The U.S.A. women’s basketball team will look to begin their Olympics with a win on Tuesday morning against Nigeria. The US are a heavy favorite (-29.5), so a strong first quarter is more than expected. Even the U.S.A. men were able to get off to a decent start in their game against France despite the eventual loss. Do not expect the women to fold on the heels of their fast start. This should be extremely lopsided, so a double-digit lead after one quarter is worth a small play. Be sure to check out all our coverage for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Blue Jays vs Red Sox: Each team to record a hit in the first inning – Boosted to +150 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Both starting pitchers could be seen as shaky here, as Nick Pivetta has an ERA of 4.37 for Boston and Tom Hatch has not made a start yet for Toronto. Both offenses are also strong at the top, so even if neither can score in the first inning, asking each side to record a hit is more than reasonable. For that reason I would back this prop as a small play. Be sure to check out all our MLB picks for today’s action.

White Sox & Cubs both to win – Boosted to +240 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Looking for the Windy City sweep so to speak, we will need both Chicago sides to win their games. Our experts only lean to the White Sox and actually like the Reds to beat the Cubs, so this is probably an odds boost best to avoid. Be sure to check out all our MLB picks for today’s action.

Shohei Ohtani to strike out the first Rockies batter – Boosted to +320 with DraftKings Sportsbook

There was another home run for Shohei Ohtani yesterday and tonight he will take the mound. Ohtani has 95 strikeouts over 73.o innings, so he has a stellar K/9 of 11.7. The Rockies first batter is Raimael Tapia, but with only 53 strikeouts on the year in 351 plate appearances, this is probably an odds boost best to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Bryce Harper to record 2+ hits & Phillies to win – Boosted to +425 with DraftKings Sportsbook

It is important to note that our experts do like the Phillies to take care of the Nationals tonight. As for Bryce Harper, he is coming off a series with Atlanta with a couple of hits, but only one multi-hit game. Joe Ross is the starter for the Nationals, though, and with how inconsistent he can be this looks to be a decent play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Boston Red Sox to score first – Boosted to +135 with BetMGM Sportsbook

The outcome of this game is irrelevant for this odds boost, so here we are going to look for the Red Sox to score first. Knowing they are facing Tom Hatch, who has not made a start, would lead me to believe that Boston can get to him early. For that reason I will back this prop as a small play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Both Philadelphia and Boston to Win – Boosted to +260 with FanDuel Sportsbook

The Phillies look to have a favorable matchup against Joe Ross and the Nationals, therefore we do like the Phillies to win. As for the Red Sox, we actually lean towards the Toronto side with the loaded lineup they have. Because of the uncertainty with Nick Pivetta and Boston, look to avoid this parlay. Be sure to check out all our MLB picks for today’s action.

Phillies, Reds and Tigers all to win – Boosted to +1000 with William Hill Sportsbook

As mentioned in a different odds boost, we like the Phillies to win because Joe Ross is not exactly a reliable pitcher. We lean towards the Reds as well with a very good Wade Miley on the mound and a Cubs team that is too streaky. Finally, we like the Tigers on the run line, but a win might be too much to ask for. They are playing Minnesota, who has been terrible, so a very small play on this parlay still feels warranted with the price we are getting. Be sure to check out all our MLB picks for today’s action.

USA shutout win over Australia – Boosted to +175 with William Hill Sportsbook

After a horrible start to their Olympic campaign, the U.S.A. women came out and beat New Zealand 6-1. Now facing Australia in their third group game and we expect another class performance. This boost is asking the USA to record a shutout, over given their defense so far, I am not sure they will be able to do that. Our experts like a U.S.A. win and both teams to score prop, so even if they USA win convincingly, do not be shocked to see the Aussies find the back of the net. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Dallas Cowboys over 10.5 regular season wins – Boosted to +250 with William Hill Sportsbook

The NFL season is getting closer everyday and here we have a win total prop regarding the Dallas Cowboys. With the new 17-game season, the Cowboys will need to win at least 11 games here to cash this prop. Their division still looks to be relatively weak with most of the teams still in a rebuilding phrase. They play the NFC South and AFC West, which should likely produce two wins from each division. Also, they have the Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans, so they are expected to have two more wins there. With a relatively easy schedule this year, I anticipate them getting to 11 wins and will back the over as a small play. Be sure to check out all of our NFL Futures for the 2021 season.
